Thanks to Yahoo for reprinting the press release revealing Midway has announced a multi-product agreement with Epic to publish three new Unreal franchise games
. The deal is "including Unreal Championship 2 [originally to be published by Microsoft], an Xbox exclusive title scheduled to ship in 2005, and two future installments of Unreal Tournament [previous versions published by Atari] on PC and upcoming next generation consoles."
In related news, Midway announced financial results for Q2 2004
, with some slightly positive news (the company "expects to have shipped over one million units of NBA Ballers through 2004 Q3"
), but disappointment in a "loss [of] $9.0 million"
, and news that Midway "has moved one of its major releases, Area 51, from 2004 into 2005."
